New From Veggie Tales: The League of Incredible Vegetables

posted by Nell Minow

The Veggie Tales folks at Big Idea Entertainment have a new DVD just in time for Halloween, to help kids who might have a hard time telling the difference between fun scary and scary scary.  It’s called The League of Incredible Vegetables and it’s the first superhero-themed Veggie Tales story.  Bad guy Dr. Flurry wants to freeze the town — with fear!  That’s too much for just one superhero to handle, so LarryBoy,  Thingamabob (Bob the Tomato), S-Cape (Mr. Lunt), Vogue (Petunia Rhubarb) and Ricochet (Junior Asparagus) have to work together and learn to understand and overcome their own fears in order to save the day.  No one does silly stories with real lessons better than the Veggies.  This one is a lot of fun and a good way to start some conversations about fear, faith, and cooperation.  For a free craft and coloring sheet to go with the DVD, send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Veggies in the subject line.

Movie Critic Ann Hornaday Comes Out as...a Christian
Washington Post movie critic Ann Hornaday wrote a brave and very moving essay about being a writer sustained by Christian faith and how that affects the way she approaches all films and especially those with religious themes. As a critic, my first obligation is to assess each of these films not as
